About Public Limited Company

Public Limited Company registration can be initiated with a minimum of three Directors who are individuals (up to a maximum of 15 directors), and seven subscribers who may be Individuals or corporate entities. Both, the directors and subscribers may or may not be the same person. The Companies Act 2013 does not set any minimum capital limit, so the minimum limit remains Nil. A public limited company has features like separate legal entity which enables it to be distinct from its members and directors. The members hold a limited liability in the company and cannot be held liable beyond the shares held by them.

Public Limited Company registration is initiated primarily if the number of shareholders/investors are large in number. The shares of a public limited company can be transferred with ease and ensuring a suitable structure for raising capital. Before initiating a public limited company registration, one needs to be aware of more stringent regulatory requirements as compared to a private limited company in compliance with the Companies Act 2013.

Features

Limited Liability and Separate Legal Entity

Liability of the shareholders of a public limited company is restricted to the capital invested in the company, and hence shareholders are not personally liable. It is a legal entity which is distinct from its shareholders and directors. It can own assets and liabilities in its own name.

Exhaustive Compliance Structure

A public limited company has an exhaustive structure of rules and regulations to be followed, i.e. provisions of Companies act 2013, listing agreement (for listed companies), along with notifications, circulars, and orders issued by the government from time to time.

Capital Intensive

Public Limited Company registration is initiated primarily if the capital invested is huge or if the number of shareholders is too large. Since the investment is made open to the general public, such structure requires strict compliance management.

Preferred for Investment

Shares of a public limited company can be traded freely by the shareholders, and even online trading is possible for listed companies. A public limited company is preferred by both retail and institutional investors for investment, due to easy availability and transferability of shares.
